foodie heaven.

writing this post is going to make my mouth water.  but i am willing to make the sacrifice.  for y'all.  cause i'm such a nice person.  y'all.  right.  anyway.  if you have ever been to austin, texas or have heard anything about it, you likely know it has some ah-MAZING food.  my 3-day trip last weekend was basically a tour of some of the best, according to the bf, a ut alum and therefore an expert!

first stop: trudy's, for mexican martinis (they give you the WHOLE shaker!!) and stuffed avocado.  

{sorry for the poor quality - i've decided to blame the shaker}

next up: the oasis for lunch on lake travis, with gorgeous views and, yes, more margaritas!

followed by: chuy's for dinner (yup, more tex mex.  overload!  but, when in rome...)

later that night (think: post-bar): gourdough's, the most phenomenal food truck ever invented.  fact.  made-fresh-to-order donuts.  yes.  please.  food trucks in general are a crazy good idea (chicago needs more.  asap.), and austin has gone pro in them.  they're everywhere.  i am jealous.    

and finally: rudy's.  for the good ole texas barbeque, y'all!  i need me some brisket now.  

and that's the story of how i gained 5 pounds in a weekend...
